Photos by Kim

Last Thursday Devin and I met our friends Kim, Emma, and Lexie at Brookdale Farm. Kim took some great pictures of the kids (as usual). Here are a few.

Phone Photo Friday~ Hard At Work

Here are a couple of phone photos from this week.

Devin is intently drawing a "building" with every color chalk he has in his bucket. He was so focused!

Here he is below at the farm store. Yeah, he is hard at work finding treats! This mean Momma didn't buy them, but it did make a cute photo op!

Bath Time Writing

I have to say, as active as Devin is, he is pretty darn smart. He wanted to use the tub crayons so I asked him, "How do you spell 'cat' ?" and he responded with "Ccccc-aaaa-ttttt" and wrote this. I love how the 'a' is both a capital and lower case 'a'.

Also tonight when we were reading 'Wiley Learns To Read' we were sounding out the word 'frog' to see if the letters were in the proper order. Devin was able to tell me that the 'o' and 'r' were mixed up. It first appeared as 'forg' and then Wiley has to fix it. This is not a book we've read often.

Oh how I love witnessing young minds blossom!

In the Words of Devin

When I go to Middle School....wait. What's Middle School? Do you fart there? That's what I heard on tv.

Oye. What are we going to do with this child???

Apple Picking

Nothing says fall like a 60* Sunday morning spent apple picking followed by an afternoon of warm apple crisp.

Beautiful Week-end

After a close brush with Hurricane Earl on Friday/Friday night, we had a gorgeous Labor Day week-end! Saturday morning I went for a relaxing massage and then spent the day with Devin and my Mom. We went to visit Memmere and helped her clean the driveway. Devin spent the night at Grandma and Papa's Saturday which allowed Erick and I to have a date nice (THANK YOU MOM!). Sunday we picked up Devin and headed to the fair for the highlight of the week-end. Devin had never been to a fair so it was especially exciting to him! We met up with the Beaulieu's and some other friends and had a great time (who doesn't love rides, animals, and fair food??)
Devin and Pierce are so silly together!!
Devin hit the rides with Pierce. (Roller Coaster)
(Swings- Shea, Pierce, Devin)
Pet lots of animals...
Look at the expression on this sheep/lamb 's (?) face. Was he not loving the attention?? LOL
Devin waited all afternoon to ride this big slide. Finally the line shortened up a bit and he was able to go.
Gigantic Pumpkins!
This was Devin 5 minutes into the car ride home:
On Monday we went back to my parents' house for a BBQ. We had Erin and Shaun plus Memmere over. Good food, relaxing fun times, and great company...what more can you ask for??
